This data set shows the grasslands priority conservation areas (GPCAs) within North America’s Central Grasslands, an ecosystem considered among the most threatened in the continent and the world. GPCAs are defined as areas of tri-national importance due to their ecological significance and threatened nature, which are in need of international cooperation for their successful conservation. The 59 GPCAs were identified by biodiversity experts through research and a workshop co-organized by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) and the Nature Conservancy in 2004 and Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory in 2010. This is an amended version of the 2007 data set.
This dataset contains landscape-scale greater sage-grouse Preliminary General Habitat. Specifically, it represents the remaining Sagebrush, Perennial grassland, Conifer encroachment, and some Persistence greater than 25% not accounted for in the 2012 Preliminary Priority Habitat dataset (Version 2 - April 2012). A combination of Key Habitat (Sather-Blair et al., 2000; ISAC 2006; BLM 2012), important winter and breeding habitat, local priority areas (spatially identified by the local working groups, BLM, IDFG biologists), known migration movement corridors, the revised 2011PA polygons, and exclusion of modeled agricultural and timber lands were used to further refine the 2012 Preliminary Priority Habitat (PPH) and...
Sage-grouse core areas are habitats associated with 1) Montana's highest densities of sage-grouse (25% quartile), based on male counts and/or 2) sage-grouse lek complexes and associated habitat important to sage-grouse distribution. The data are intended for display of sage grouse core areas in Montana. The data are intended for initial resource review and conservation planning. For evaluating or reviewing site specific applications Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) recommends contacting the appropriate FWP Regional office. These are the Montana SageGrouse Core Areas 2010 polygons for Idaho-SW Montana Greater Sage Grouse Subregion. Areas that overlap into Idaho do not apply to Idaho and may represent difference...
